Tax Preparation Help available at Monmouth County Library in 2013

February 1, 2013

For the past two decades, taxpayers seeking help with their income tax returns have found help at the Monmouth County Library.

This year tax preparation assistance, offered by AARP Tax Aide program volunteers, will be offered at three Monmouth County Library branches, beginning in February.

AARP volunteers will be on hand at the Library Headquarters in Manalapan, the Eastern Branch Library in Shrewsbury, and the Wall Township branch of the Monmouth County Library. This service is available for low-and middle-income taxpayers with simple returns.

The schedule for AARP Tax Assistance at the Monmouth County Library is as follows:


Eastern Branch

1001 Route 35, Shrewsbury 07702

Begins Monday, Feb. 4 – Ends Friday, April 12



– Mondays –

9:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.

– Tuesdays –

These hours are approximate. Depending on the volume of clients, the tax assistants may stop taking new clients an hour or more before the end time listed.

Preparations will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis. You do not have to be a senior citizen to have your tax return done by the AARP. Please bring last year’s tax returns with you.


Please note: All taxpayers must be present when their tax return is prepared. If filing a joint return, both taxpayers must be present.  Please bring social security cards or comparable documentation for you (and spouse and all dependents if applicable).
